The Edo State Governorship elections commenced, Saturday, with a reported massive turnout of voters in many parts of the state.

Journalists gathered voting materials arrived early at many polling centres though some areas were said to have experienced delay in the arrival of materials.

The insistence by the INEC electoral officials that all voting materials must be accompanied by security personnel was said to have  caused the delay of materials in those areas.

However, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere, former presidential adviser and PDP leader who defected to the ACN complained that a polling unit in Owan West,  with over three hundred registered voters  was reduced to about a hundred voters adding,  that he hopes this anomaly will not be repeated in other areas.
